02:44 am - Nightshades?
hello,

i have some confusion on nightshades, because the lists on different sites don't match up. some say blueberries, others say peppers (which would be sad, considering the latter helps with my arthritis).

any clues as to what to look for in a particular food, so's i'm not bound by eternal wonder? thanks in advance for your 2 cents.

Are you trying to avoid nightshades? I'm quite allergic to them, and can only eat peppers once in a while. But if you were using peppers or capsaicin creams topically for your arthritis, I think that would be different than if you were eating them all the time.
(avoid the website that says blueberries are nightshade!)

yeah, i've wondered about topical vs ingesting. good to hope that blueberries are still on the list! :)
